Friendly and informal message proposed by []:

Why not view this page on (for homepage: Why not try out)  the new GBIF portal at, which has many more features and includes lots of information about the GBIF community, including great examples of data uses in research and interesting applications? The old GBIF data portal which you are viewing now will continue to be supported until we are satisfied it can be taken down without causing major inconvenience. Be aware that the content here is static and has not been updated since the launch of the new portal on 9 October 2013. If and when a date is confirmed for discontinuing the old data portal, we will post it here with plenty of prior notice.

Comments are welcome, thanks.

Comment: Looks good to me.  Non committal on the dates is a good thing for now.
